Aquamarine Butterfly tag


Hi everyone, I'm on day one of my long service leave and have enjoyed playing in my craft room nearly all day!

I was inspired to make this tag by the gorgeous colours used in Tammy Tutterow's beautiful blends tutorial. I don't have all of the colours she used, but tried to match hers the best I could using cracked pistachio; peacock feathers; tumbled glass; mermaid lagoon and chipped sapphire.

I'm linking up to a few challenges.
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday has a make it colourful theme.

Cuttlebug Mania  is back from their break with an anything goes challenge. I used MFT tag and pierced tag dies and Leafy Branch embossing folder in my  cuttlebug.

At AAA Cards the theme is spectacular embossing.


At Time Out the theme is to make your mark, I coloured my butterfly with prismacolor pencils.
